Christine Oddy is keeping up her opposition to the Birmingham Northern Relief Road, the
privately financed motorway which will cut through the edge of her Coventry and North
She will be joining other opponents of the road - Britain's first toll motorway - at a
meeting in Birmingham today organised by the Erdington Group Against the BNRR.
The future of the controversial road is currently in the balance with a ruling on a
legal challenge by a group of opponents awaited from the High Court.
Ms Oddy said:
"I have always opposed the building of this road which will cause huge damage to
the environment and provide only temporary relief to the region's traffic problems. The
real solution is to improve public transport, transport more freight by rail and look for
alternatives to using the car for every journey."
